Before- and After-School Care

The Y’s School-Age Before- and After-School program is intended to help children achieve the following goals: 

  • Reach their potential.  By teaching and demonstrating lessons in self-awareness, confidence, academic achievement, and value development, we strive to set children up to excel. 
  • Support and strengthen the family unit. We hope to help improve communication among family members, encourage positive communication between parents and children, and build a sense of community between families. 
  • Deliver a positive experience. We’re committed to providing a safe, supportive program for children to learn and grow.
